Get Ready For It! The Band Comes to the City
The record-breaking musical featuring the hits of Take That makes its Hull debut
Hull New Theatre takes a step back in time to 1992 next month, to a time when flannel shirts, ripped jeans and heavy boots were the height of fashion, as The Band featuring the music of Take That hits the stage.
The Band, starring Five To Five (winners of BBC talent contest Let It Shine) is a new musical about what it’s like to grow up with a boyband. For five 16 year-old friends in 1992, ‘the band’ is everything. A quarter of a century later, we are reunited with the friends, now 40-something women, as they try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting their heroes.
Twenty two years ago millions of teenage girls were left heartbroken when the British boyband split up. More than two decades later David Pugh, Daffyd Rogers and Take That’s brand new musical smashed all box office records, taking £2 million within the first two hours of going on sale making it the fastest selling theatre tour ever. And now it’s Hull’s turn.
Written by Tim Firth, directed by Kim Gavin and Jack Ryder (EastEnders) with set design by Jon Bausor and choreography by Kim Gavin, The Band has had audiences up and down the country dancing in the aisles with its infectious brand of upbeat camaraderie.
The Band takes to the Hull New Theatre stage from 6-17 March 2018. Tickets, priced from £19.50 are on sale now from the Hull City Hall box office or by calling 01482 300 306. Visit our new website www.hulltheatres.co.uk to book online.
